Gluten Free should also be Wheat Free

11 Apr

Here is what I woke up to in my email box this morning:

“Hey Melanie,
 Great question and we are glad you reached out to us!
¬†Actually, all of our products are Gluten free in accordance to guidelines laid out by the FDA. We do use Wheat Germ Oil in our product, but it is Gluten Free. This difference is a result of how the Wheat Germ Oil is processed.”

Wheat germ oil, no matter how it is processed, continues to contain wheat and therefore should not be labelled gluten free by any company.
